I’m Dr. Ryan Tomlins. I practice non-operative orthopedics and sports medicine here at Cotton O’Neil.

What conditions do you treat?

I think a lot of people have a misconception that we only see athletes or people that are really active. And that is true to some extent. But we also see weekend warriors, people who have desk jobs, and blue collar workers that may have other conditions that aren’t necessarily sports-related.

We treat, really, a lot of things head to toe. We’re seeing people with concussions. We’re seeing people with neck and back type pain, extremity pain — such as arthritis, tendonitis. [These] are probably the things we see a large majority of. And we also see those acute injuries: fractures that don’t require surgery, sports-related injuries.

Why should patients trust you with their care?

I think patients should trust Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics and Sports Med mostly because we really try to be good at the small things. Communication is probably the top thing we really try to be good at: returning phone calls quickly, expediting visits, listening to concerns — just taking 5, 10 minutes to listen to the patient — is a big part of what we do.
